[ANN] Apache Ant 1.9.9 and 1.10.1 Released

The Apache Ant Team is pleased to announce the releases of Apache Ant
1.9.9 and 1.10.1.

Apache Ant is a Java library and command-line tool that helps building
software.

The Apache Ant team currently maintains two lines of development. The
1.9.x releases require Java5 at runtime and 1.10.x requires Java8 at
runtime. Both lines are based off of Ant 1.9.7 and the 1.9.x releases
are mostly bug fix releases while additional new features are developed
for 1.10.x. We recommend using 1.10.1 unless you are required to use
versions of Java prior to Java8 during the build process.

Ant 1.10.1 contains a superset of 1.9.9 - with the exception of a few
tasks and features that no longer work with Java8 anyway (like the apt
task).

The new releases revert a change to 1.9.8 and 1.10.0 that broke Eclipse
integration and also fixes the ant wrapper script for
Solaris 10. In addition 1.10.1 adds tasks and types that support XZ
compression with the help of the XZ for Java[1] library.

Source and binary distributions are available for download from the
Apache Ant download site:

http://ant.apache.org/bindownload.cgi
http://ant.apache.org/srcdownload.cgi

When downloading, please verify signatures using the KEYS file available
at the above location when downloading the release.

Changes in 1.10.1 include:
==========================

Fixed bugs:
- -----------

 * Ant 1.10.0 made Path#systemClasspath final which broke the Eclipse
   integration.
   Bugzilla Report 60582

 * the wrapper script still didn't work on Solaris 10, but worked on
   Solaris 11.
   The "fixed" script should work in most cases but will not preserve
   newlines present in command line arguments.
   Bugzilla Report 60562

Other changes:
- --------------

 * new tasks <xz> and <unxz> and resource <xzresource> for XZ
   compression. Also the compression attribute of <tar>/<untar> now
   accepts "xz" as valid value.
   The tasks and type are contained in the new ant-xz.jar and require
   the library XZ for Java to be on the CLASSPATH.
   Bugzilla Report 60350


Changes in 1.9.9 include:
=========================

Fixed bugs:
- -----------

 * Ant 1.9.8 made Path#systemClasspath final which broke the Eclipse
   integration.
   Bugzilla Report 60582

 * the wrapper script still didn't work on Solaris 10, but worked on
   Solaris 11.
   The "fixed" script should work in most cases but will not preserve
   newlines present in command line arguments.
